Published on the occasion of the landmark exhibition of the same name held at the Boca Raton Museum of Art in 1999. Presents, in a lovely collectible format, Elizabeth Cerejido's "Escucho"/"I Listen". A darkly beautiful collection of female nudes. "The body is an ear. It is not the heart but the organ of sound that rules over feelings and will. Birth, sex, and death - our primal states of nakedness - function as the iconic turning points for self-knowledge and actualization. Cerejido recovers the image of the nude in ways that owe more to music, dance, and theater than they do to the visual arts. She catches the model on the way to a pose or between congealing stances. For all of Cerejido's exquisite formal sense and impeccable taste, her nudes are not about the Minimalist poetry of the figure. Instead, they are the dreamt paradigm of Eros, divested of heat and trembling" (Ricardo Pau-Llosa). For Cerejido (as for most major artists and photographers in the Western tradition) : Eros is Woman. She incarnates sex-as-reality, sex-as-ideal, sex-as-beauty, and sex-as-power. An absolute "must-have" title for Elizabeth Cerejido collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and dated (in the month and year of publication) in black pen on the front free endpaper by the artist/photographer: "Elizabeth Cerejido 3/99". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title is a contemporary erotic art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 30 plates. One of the most brilliant American artist/photographers of the female nude of our time. A fine copy. Bookseller Inventory # 19360
